The paper says that an “unauthorized third party” hacked into its jobs database and absconded with 1.27 million user ids and email addresses. No passwords or other personal information were affected, according to the Post. What that means is that if you were in that database, you might be getting some “spear phishing” spam. Look for an email that seems to know a lot about you, possibly pointing to a really exciting job opportunity, maybe asking for more details about you personally. Boom, you’re an identity theft victim. Or maybe you’re asked to click on something weird. Boom, your computer is infected.
